Ontario storm knocks out power for thousands

Nearly 50,000 customers were without power across southern Ontario after an intense storm battered the province on Sunday, bringing heavy winds, rain, hail and possible funnel clouds.

The outages were spread over an area from Lake Huron to Toronto. The utility company Hydro One said it hopes to restore service to many of its customers by later Sunday night.
